TALLMADGE, OH 1/18/05 Jeff Winters, Marketing Manager for Summit Racing Equipment, the nation's largest purveyor of mail order high performance parts, and the official Mail Order company of the NHRA, today announced that the company has re-signed Pro Stock competitor Mark "Cowboy" Pawuk of Richfield to an Associate Sponsorship agreement.
"We're extremely pleased to continue our affiliation with Mark," said Winters. "He did an exceptional job of representing the company for a dozen seasons, and we're happy to be able to continue that relationship through this coming season and possibly beyond. 'The Cowboy' has always been a first rate representative for Summit Racing Equipment both on the track and as a personal representative for us, as his professionalism is beyond question.
"Pawuk has made some important changes to his operation in the last few months, and we're looking forward to improved performances from his Pontiac Grand Am as the 2005 NHRA POWERade progresses, as we know he is, too. It's going to be a fun year for all of us."
Pawuk is obviously pleased about this year's program, commenting from his offices at Empaco Equipment Company that "we're excited about being a part of the Summit Racing team this year. With competitors like POWERade champ Greg Anderson, Road to the Future award winner Jason Line, six-time champ Warren Johnson and his son, Kurt, and Mopar driver Larry Morgan all representing Summit in NHRA Pro Stock it's going to be tough trying to stand out, but we'll definitely do our best. From top to bottom Pro Stock is without question the most competitive eliminator on the NHRA POWERade Series, so we know we've got to hit the ground running at the Winternationals in Pomona next month.
"We've been burning a lot of midnight oil since the 2004 season ended, and I believe we've made some real progress. Obviously, we'll know the answer to that one at Pomona!"
